Experience it all: combine a Scenic Eclipse America’s voyage with an escorted land journey


On a Scenic Eclipse ultra-luxury voyage through North and Central America, it’s highly likely you’ll be lured by the natural beauty, incredible wildlife and exotic cultures of these regions and be keen to explore further beyond your voyage. By combining your ocean voyage with a 5-star land journey, you can seamlessly transition into an even deeper discovery of this incredible part of the world, heading further inland and enjoying the same luxury levels of service you’ll come to love from the expert Scenic team.  
With more than 35 years’ experience, Scenic has set the benchmark in luxury escorted  journeys that offer deeper insights into the culture, nature and history of this region – traveling  with a maximum of only 20 guests and expert Tour Directors.  

There are a number of combinable options to consider when visiting this part of the world. For example, following the 12-Day Andean Coastal Exploration, from Puerto Caldera to Lima, you could continue on with a 15-Day Peru & Amazon Experience from Lima to Cuzco. Or, before the 16-Day Adventures of the Inside Passage voyage from Anchorage to Vancouver, start with a 7-Day Wilds of Alaska land journey from Anchorage to Anchorage.  

Here are some of the many benefits you can expect when combining your cruise with a luxurious exploration by land:  

Enhanced insights

Linger longer during a Scenic Eclipse escorted land journey. On these multi-day discoveries, you’ll explore destinations in small groups and travel in 5-star comfort with an expert Tour Director. At each site, local guides will share their in-depth knowledge and understanding of local landscapes, history and culture.  

In Alaska and Canada for instance, visit national parks that reveal magnificent lakes, verdant forests and fascinating wildlife.   

Be mesmerized by the natural beauty of Costa Rica and its volcanic peaks, lush rainforests and the largest variety of endemic bird species in the world.  

Take the time to marvel at leisure at The Galápagos Islands – and untouched utopia of unique wildlife that was a muse of Charles Darwin when he visited in 1835, collecting species that would form the basis of his Theory of Evolution.  

Meanwhile in Peru, you’ll be thankful for the extra time to explore incredible sites such as the World Heritage-listed 15th century citadel of Machu Picchu. Gaze at the picturesque fields on your rail journey to Machu Picchu then spend a full day at the ancient Inca site where your guide will share the mysteries of these majestic ruins.  

Amid the extraordinary beauty of the Sacred Valley in Peru in the Andes mountains, marvel at the display of traditions and textiles of the locals during a weaving demonstration before a delicious Andean feast at Hacienda Huayoccari. Sample incredible cuisine in Cuzco city, the Inca capital from the 13th to the 16th century and tour the local markets, ending with a memorable farewell dinner in the Gold Room of the Pre-Columbian Art Museum of Cusco. Visit the mighty and biodiverse Amazon jungle to understand why it’s referred to as the ‘Lungs of the Planet’.

Stay in some of the world’s most incredible hotels

When traveling on a land journey, you have the added benefit of staying at a selection of luxurious hotels in iconic locations.  In the Scenic Special Stays hotel collection, properties have been chosen for not only their highest standards of luxurious hospitality but also their ambience, heritage and position within unique locations.  In Canada, for instance, stay at the legendary Fairmont Banff Springs, known as ‘the Castle in the Rockies’ and at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Be immersed in remote surrounds at McKinley Chalet Resort in Denali, Alaska. 

In Peru’s Cuzco, stay at the colonial mansion built overlooking Inca foundations at the Palacio Del Inka Luxury Collection. In the heart of town, the Belmond Monasterio is housed in a former monastery with an elegant façade.  Experience the only hotel in the centre of Iguazú National Park just a few hundred feet from the famous falls at Belmond das Cataratas Hotel.  In Chile, you can stay at the foothills of historic Machu Picchu and enjoy traditional indigenous spa treatments at explora Patagonia, Chile.
